Private Cryptocurrencies and Lessons from a Red Paperclip
Keynote speech of BSP Governor Nestor A. Espenilla, Jr., Cryptocurrency: The Truth & the Myth Forum, 12 March 2018, Dusit Thani Hotel

Officers and members of the Shareholders’ Association of the Philippines, guests from the public and private sectors, ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon!

It is my pleasure to share the Bangko Sentral’s insights and initiatives on privately-issued cryptocurrencies. I am hopeful that in doing so, we will, as your theme suggests, be able to cut through the “truths and myths” surrounding this fairly novel medium of exchange. Notice though that I make a key distinction as there’s such a thing as central bank-issued digital currency. I’m not going there today as that’s a different conversation all together even as the underlying technology may be similar.

But there it is. Cryptocurrencies are a medium of exchange. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) recognizes this.

The occasion was a rare feat for any organization: It was the first time the Zobel brothers spoke jointly as principal speakers in one forum. SharePHIL was indeed honored by this distinct privilege. Read more

Zobel brothers share insights on surviving, thriving
By Doris Dumlao-Abadilla - Philippine Daily Inquirer - 4 September 2017

For seven generations, they have built job-creating enterprises that helped grow the Philippine economy.

Their history is entwined with that of the country, through the long colonial period and two world wars alongside domestic economic and political cycles. Indeed, in the last 183 years, it has evolved from an agricultural trading house into one of the largest, most diversified and most admired conglomerates in the country.

Conglomerate Ayala Corp., the country’s oldest business house, traces its roots to Casa Roxas, set up in 1834 by Antonio de Ayala, a poor young man from the small town of Ayala in Spain’s Basque region who worked as assistant to Domingo Roxas, descendant of settlers who arrived in the Philippines by way of Acapulco in the late 1770s. Read more
